New releases on HBO, Cinemax and Showtime
How long does it take for new release movies to get to HBO, Cinemax and/or Showtime?
I just got notice that Netflix is increasing their prices dramatically so I am thinking about cancelling it and just adding a movie channel to my Dish account. I am curious how long after Netflix normally gets a new release until it shows up on Dish. Keep in mind, Netflix already has to wait 28 days after a movie is release to DVD before Netflix will have it. How much longer after this will the movie channels get new movies. Also, which premium has the most new releases. Does HBO get them before Cinemax or Showtime?

I was thinking of the same thing, or go to Blockbuster for 11.99 since they get them on the day they come out. Will be giving up streaming with Netflix new pricing
Usually take about 9-12 month for a movie to go from the big screen to a premium channel like HBO. Usually HBO gets them about the same time as the others. Now keep in mind that HBO and Cinemax show the same movies because they're from the same company so doing HBO and Max ONLY won't be the best deal. In my opinion, Showtime has become the worst premium for new movies and Starz is just OK/fine. Here's how I would rank the 4 big premiums.

The reason Showtime has become the worst for new movies is Epix bought the rights to several studios they had the rights to.
I don't believe Netflix has become more expensive to stream, just to stream and get DVDs.
If you had the stream and DVD and drop to just streaming, you save a couple bucks now. I think I'll be just dropping to streaming.

I'm dropping their DVD mail service. I use streaming more now anyways. If I need a movie that bad there's always Blockbuster, Family Video, blockbuster express or red box.
